Sam Bradford got one of his two favorite targets back on the practice field today. But the team’s leading receiver remains sidelined.

Tight end Kyle Rudolph, who has a touchdown catch in each of Bradford’s three starts, participated in practice despite a clavicle/rib injury that he presumably suffered in Monday night’s win over the Giants.

Fellow tight ends Rhett Ellison and David Morgan, who are dealing with knee injuries, did not practice, however. During the open portion of practice, Morgan was spotted doing some running on the far side of one practice field. Ellison stood and watched position drills on another.

Wide receiver Stefon Diggs, who is fifth in the NFL with 372 receiving yards, sat out practice for a second straight day due to a groin injury.

Also sitting out practice were right tackle Andre Smith (triceps) and defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd (knee). That’s two practices in a row for Smith, who was again replaced at right tackle by Jeremiah Sirles.
